    E-mail bouncing question

    What happens if an e-mail is sent from a mailbox that has already exceeded its storage allocation, to another mailbox that has also exceeded its storage allocation (or anything that would cause both mailboxes to return the e-mail with an error message).

    Would e-mails just keep bouncing back and forth? (e.g. would the returned e-mail be replied to with another returned e-mail, etc.)

    No, there SHOULD be a anti loop type deal in most email software. If there isent one, then yes you would get a interesting little loop
